the white start - Swedish style

It's wonderful to see another new year dawn and as we are well on our way to what promises to be an exciting year. checkout the amazing Swedish vintage style that caught my attention, I can't get enough of this  style. I've shared the below images to get you all in the mood, like the below bath...adorable. Little inexpensive additions can convert any room into a serene, white oasis.

Milk glass vases, pitchers and bowls are a treasure like this one above, and can be found at any flea market worth its reputation.

That home office above gets two thumbs up, get super creative and spray paint an old metal desk (a major undertaking, I suggest get it professionally done). Those old picture frames, you were probably going to toss out can look new again, with a collection of black and white illustrations or photos.

Loving the shabby chic vibe going on above, such a great mix of vintage and modern. Sofa covers and pillow covers can change your decor in a heartbeat when you are experimenting,  but this look is a definite keeper.

So with my budget for decorating being non-existent, I'm grabbing some paint to work some magic. Are you inspired to give your ho-hum home office, bedroom or kitchen some love. Be sure to share what's inspiring you this New Year.

  1. You have given me some brilliant ideas. My office was humdrum so I can't wait to pick up some paint and make some old sad picture frames brand new! You always inspire me!!

Your Time (Happy Friday).

Hello my Lovelies. I trust you all a great week and looking forward to the weekend. I know I am, as I have lovely dinner plans with a trip to the beach as well as , to catch some much needed sunshine. Don't get me wrong there is great weather all around me here in the tropics, but when you are working in a cold air conditioning office, you don't see much of the sun or warm weather.

I adore simple weekend dresses like the one I've posted, that's breezy and light or shorts with filp flops and a huge beach bag where I just throw my stuff in. The weekend is also not complete without a broad rim hat, the broader the better.

Well Cheers to the wekend and be safe my Lovelies, till we meet again.

Love Lisa

a very happy Christmas to one and all

A very happy Christmas and a Prosperous New Year to all my lovelies and to all peace and joy.
